Hey Miss D! I am glad you missed the whole Dan Healy critique of our interactions hereabouts (well, my side of it that is); if you did happen to see it, hope it wasn't really an issue...

On a serious note, if you have happened to sample those 9-19-70 disks of late, let me know if you detect ANYTHING amiss with any of the CDs (esp if you have played them a few times, and in different players)...I have had a few burned disks turn up "twitchy" on some CD players of late, and would very much like to know if you notice anything ("skipping" or worse--"disk error" kinds of events).

Nope, looks like I missed all the 'fun'....

Nothing wrong with the copies you sent me, they seem to be fine in my NAD CD player and my PC CD drive.

Always good to hear; thanks for the feedback. And, it was only a comment on my "friendly" posts with you and the ever-increasing # of gals hereabouts lately but Rob and others rose to my defense and it only left me worried, a bit, that I might sometimes come off as creepy when I liked to think it was only pathetically obsequious in tone...

I'll be creepy with you anytime, anyplace...well, maybe. Okay, only if you bring a sheep.

There, is that better? I make no distinctions on the basis of race, creed, or IQ.

Thanks Miss Divine, a fellow Gram Parsons fan! I used to work in a book store and have read the book you mentioned. I love to hear about the stories behind songs, and how they came to be. This song,which has many titles, Stagger Lee, Stack-O-Lee, ect, has been the inspiration for many songs based loosely on the story from the early 20th Century all the way to The Coasters "Big Boy Pete", Jim Croce's "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" and up to Hunter/Garcia's "Stagger Lee". A recommended book for sure for folks interested in how stories and facts changed through songs. Unfortunately "Billy D'Lyons" brought a knife to a gun fight and lost.

The beauty of art, and artistic freedom make this an endlessly fascinating story to tell, change, or make up your own story about. It reminds me of another old song that was endlessly re-written, the story of Frankie & Johnny!
